We will provide transfers to and from Geneva airport on the Saturday the course starts and finishes. You must arrive at Geneva in the afternoon, if you arrive early you will have to wait. Please do not arrive any later than 17.00. On the departure day you must book flights departing no earlier than 14.30, any later and you will have to wait. NB: If your flight is delayed we cannot wait later than 17.30 so you may be required to get a taxi and claim via your insurance (taxi is approx. 600€) hence it is imperative you arrange Travel Insurance. You will also need Insurance which covers Grade 4 rapids for white-water rafting (May-Sept courses only). If you haven´t booked flights when completing the Booking Form, please let us know flight details when confirmed.

This costs approx. 50 euros and you will need Travel Insurance that covers white water rafting.
